Create A Lasting Postnuptial Agreement That Strengthens Your Marriage

You’ve likely heard of prenuptial agreements, but are you familiar with their counterpart made after vows are exchanged? Postnuptial agreements offer many advantages. They clarify expectations and protect assets.

Postnups are a proactive step in ensuring peace of mind for both partners. Contrary to common myths about postnuptial agreements, these contracts don’t need to undermine your marriage or pave the path toward divorce. Instead, they help build a stronger union by fostering transparency and communication.

Our team at the Encino law firm of Nemiroff & Cohen, LLP, helps couples develop customized post-marital agreements that strengthen their marital foundation. Our lead attorney, Gail Cohen, brings over 35 years of experience and vast knowledge of California family law to the table. She is board-certified in family law by the California Board of Legal Specialization and is committed to creating customized postnuptial agreements that reflect your unique situation, goals and vision.

What Goes Into A Postnuptial Agreement?

A postnuptial arrangement, or “postnup,” is a written contract created by spouses after the wedding. Typically, postnuptial agreements address considerations such as:

  • Financial responsibilities during the marriage
  • Division of property
  • Spousal support terms
  • Debt allocation

While similar to a prenuptial agreement, a postnup has no time limit for creation after marriage. It can also modify an existing prenup.

Ensuring That Your Postnup Stands Up To Legal Scrutiny

Creating a valid postnuptial agreement, and enforcing one in California, involves meeting certain requirements. For example, the agreement must be:

  • In writing, signed by both parties and in compliance with other formalities
  • Based on a full disclosure of assets and debts
  • Contain terms that are fair

Our lawyers can provide detailed advice on the validity of postnuptial agreement agreements.
